IWC held its fourth annual banquet on October 2. This was our second year at Avalon Manor in Merrillville. The food was delicious and overly abundant, so it's nice to know that Avalon donates the leftovers to a local shelter.
Author Michael Martone highlighted the evening with an enlightening and entertaining talk that kept the audience guessing. Professor Martone began by asking the audience members to keep their cell phones on and text him during the speech. The texts didn't come, however, because we were mesmerized by his comments on what makes a good story.
The evening concluded with an open mic. Thanks to all the talented writers who participated.
Here are some more pictures from this year's banquet.
